Charitable Efforts In Ballantyne

How does Ballantyne give back to the community?


 
Bissell encourages tenants of Ballantyne Corporate Park to get involved in the community! With annual blood, food and school supplies drives, there are many ways to give back to your local community. There are also many other charitable events in the Park — read more about annual events in Ballantyne on the Annual Events page!


 

Ballantyne Corporate Park Charitable Efforts Results

Keep Pounding Food Drive

Ballantyne Corporate Park would like to thank everyone who donated to the Keep Pounding Food Drive vs. Denver. BCP partnered with the Mecklenburg County Council of the Boy Scouts of America and the United Methodist Church to collect non-perishable food for Loaves & Fishes. 

We are excited to announce that the Ballantyne community provided over three tons of food for the Super Bowl Food Drive. The total  is based on the donation from Food Lion, the collection of physical items in BCP and Ballantyne Commons East, and monetary donations made to Loaves and Fishes over the past week. 

2,100 physical items + $1,520 online donations + 2,500 canned items from Food Lion = 6,120 total food items. 

Special thanks to everyone who contributed to the drive. Your support is greatly appreciated!

 

2016 Heineman Computer Drive Results

 
 

Thank you to everyone who donated to the Ballantyne Corporate Park computer drive benefiting the Heineman Foundation. We are pleased to announce this year's computer drive surpassed previous efforts, producing 5,966 pounds of recycled computer equipment! 

Each piece of equipment will be refurbished and donated abroad to the Technology for Education project in Guatemala. Since 2011, the Heineman Foundation has donated more than 14,000 computers to this project thanks to the generous support of Charlotte-based organizations.

We appreciate your support and help making this campaign a success!

Ballantyne Corporate Park would like to thank you for your generous donations to our Packs for Patriots drive benefiting USO North Carolina

We are thrilled to announce that as a community, we collected 14,046 toiletry and snack items, and $1,775 in monetary donations to provide over 2,000 rack packs for America's troops. All donations will be distributed to our servicemen and women as they travel home for the holidays through the USO's rack pack program

Thank you to all who contributed to this successful effort! 

 

Color the Park 2015



Thank you for your donations to the eighth annual Color the Park marker drive benefiting Classroom Central! Your generous support helped us collect a total of 20,000 coloring supplies (including packs of markers, colored pencils and crayons), 600 miscellaneous school supplies and more than $4,000 in monetary donations. Due to Classroom Central's ability to transform every dollar into five dollars worth of essential classroom tools, the collective impact of BCP's generosity is over 41,000 school supplies into the hands of students in need! 

Special thank you to all of the Team Captains from around the Park who did an excellent job coordinating collection efforts. Way to go, Ballantyne Corporate Park!
